Investment Portfolio Update #14 – Spring 2019

Fund as at 30 April 2019 = 90,870
Total Cash In = 74,356
Total Profit/(Loss) = 16,514

Summary
Wow, what a turnaround from the previous 3 months, a total increase of over 10k!!! This was 3,158 from cash in, and 7,056 of investment gains in 3 months, by far the greatest return I have experienced in such a period. Obviously I would love to take credit for making shrewd investments, but it had little to do with me and was mainly the market. The only benefit I had was continuing to invest whilst market was down, so prices were averaged down, resulting in excellent gains when the market took off.

80k to 90k in a single quarter is amazing for me, if only this was how it was everytime. But it wont be and I have continued to follow my simple plan.

There has been no change in my holdings this period, no new investments or any sold, I just continue to drip feed cash into my existing choices.

Here’s what I could buy if I cashed out – 90k

January 2019 = 80,656
Cash In = 3,158
Investment Changes = 7,056
